Running a pre-release of course is going to have its problems. First thing first is an `lspci` and confirm if you're stuck with a broadcom wifi chipset. I'm actually surprised the "quality" hardware in the Mac would even have such a chipset.
I'm curious as to how a 13.04 *buntu release fares in the same hardware, perhaps trying a daily with updates rolled in to the disc. If I had money to burn, I'd replace OS X on it just to stick it to Mac folks, ah sadism.
I wouldn't wipe MacOS from my laptop completely, but it only gets equal time when running on my laptop with the other 2 installed OSes.
I'd argue that many people who buy a Mac understand what an OS is, and they are purposefully avoiding Windows in their purchasing decisions. Multiple members of my wife's immediate family own Macs, and they all are familiar with the OS decision that they made when choosing a Mac over a PC.... Of course it helps that many of them are/were in the print/publishing business.Originally Posted by vk512
Most fun is that some test revealed that current OSX drivers for the "ac" wireless are quite slow - Windows installed on macbook gave much faster transfer
Either so "ac" wireless is quite exotic at the moment, so buying a laptop just because it has ac built in isn't rational.
What was exaggarated?There are plenty that fit your exaggerated criteria.
I knew about the Pixel, but that comes attached to a Chromebook. Didn't know about the Samsung screen, thanks.Samsung QHD display 3200 x 1800 :: pixel density 276 ppi.
Chromebook Pixel 2560 × 1700 :: 239 ppi
Retina MacBook Pro 2560 x 1600 :: 227 ppi
Ubuntu runs under VirtualBox on top of MacOS.
I had serious issues trying to get Ubuntu 13.04 to install a bootable EFI. I never determined the exact solution; so I decided to use Ubuntu 12.10. 13.04 has a bug.
